The unveiling of Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover on Monday blew up the Twitter and some of the tweets were from fellow celebrities.

Lady Gaga posted the image taken by Annie Leibovitz and wrote: @Caitlyn_Jenner thanku for being a part of all of our lives & using your platform to change people’s minds. The beauty on the inside is now also on the outside. God bless you and the whole family for sharing it with us.

Ellen DeGeneres simply wrote: ‏My hope for the world is that we can all be as brave as @Caitlyn_Jenner.

Lance Bass, a friend of the Jenner/Kardashian family, wrote: Well HELLOOOOO #CaitlynJenner!!! My wish is that everyone is able to live a happy life as their authentic self.

Rosie O’Donnell tweeted simply of Caitlyn: She moves me so.

Jenner’s stepdaughters also expressed excitement and support.

Wrote Kim Kardashian: How beautiful! Be happy, be proud, live life YOUR way!

Khloe Kardashian wrote: We were given this life because you were strong enough to live it! I couldn’t be prouder!!! Caitlyn, You are beautiful!!!

One Remark

  1. The problem that I see with this hoopla is that it may give the impression that transitioning ends up making the persons suffering from gender dysphoria with a beautiful example of themselves on the other gender and it is double weight that is more acute in male-to-female trans people. Sometimes this is not possible and those people feel that they never “reach” what they want (the go from one dysmorphia, the one from gender, to another, the one about social expectations about women’s beauty). Heightening expectations about beauty on people that already suffers from dysmorphia is a dangerous psychological gamble.

    Thus, and in my humble opinion, I wouldn’t put much accent on the fact that she ended up being a beautiful woman (he was quite a handsome man, what certainly helped) and more in the fact that she finally decided to act on a pragmatic solution for her dysphoria, that certainly opens the door for a happier person and happy people improve society.
